Overview

This is an innovative introduction to the use of photography, collaborative video, drawing, objects, multi-media production and installation in research. Claudia Mitchell explains how visual methods can be used as modes of inquiry as well as modes of representation for social research. She provides a range of conceptual and practical approaches to a variety of tools and methods, while also highlighting the interpretive and ethical issues that arise when engaging in visual research. She draws on her own work throughout to offer extensive examples from a variety of settings and with various populations.
